Bamboozled: Harken’s Eco pants

Looking for a pair of sailing pants spiffy enough to wear to the club after you step off your boat? Meet Harken’s new quick-drying Ballistic Eco pants, made from an environmentally friendly blend of bamboo, nylon and Spandex. The pants are available in four colors, and feature a reinforced seat, articulated and reinforced knees, a gusseted crotch, anti-microbial properties, plenty of pockets, and a built–in removable belt. Eco pants are comfortably stretchy throughout, including in their reinforced areas. Although tough enough to take on the rigors of the Volvo Ocean Race, they work just as well for a casual afternoon daysail. $114.95. Harken, Inc., 262-691-3320,
